Garden waste collections 

For an annual fee, we can collect your garden waste including:

  • grass cuttings
  • garden prunings
  • branches and twigs
  • leaves
  • bark
  • flowers
  • bark wood and shavings
  • plants

We will not empty green dumpy bags or green bins that contain soil, general household rubbish, food products or any hay/shavings, wood or paper contaminated by animals.

Due to changes with our recycling and waste collection services, garden waste collections for some customers have changed to a different day.

What happens after arranging collections?

Starting from 1 April 2025, all garden waste subscriptions will run for 12 months until 31 March 2026. To bring all existing subscriptions in-line with this, all renewals, upgrades and new subscriptions will end on 31 March 2025. The charges for renewing existing subscriptions will be calculated on a sliding scale according to the length of the subscription period. You can see the new charges below.

We won't be using barcode labels or tags for the containers anymore. Instead, the details of every current subscriber will be shared electronically with the collection vehicle.

How much does it cost?

The cost for our garden waste collection service depends on the number of containers you use and how you subscribe - it's cheaper if you subscribe online.
